Falcon Five-2


Dear OLMC Community,

I want to thank our faculty, students, and parents for a fantastic first week of the school year! It has been wonderful to have the students back on campus, interacting with their friends, and working hard in the classrooms.

I would like to thank our Home and School Board for hosting the first Coffree of the year. It was great to see so many of you there!

Wednesday is a Holy Day of Obligation, the solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. The parking lot will be very full on Wednesday, so please be extra patient at dismissal.

We will begin Learning Labs on Tuesday, August 14th. Learning Labs are open for students in grades 4-8 from 3:15 to 3:45 to go to their teachers for extra assistance if needed. Learning Labs are every Tuesday and Thursday. Please pick up your student at the classroom at 3:45. Those students not picked up will be signed into Kid’s Club.

We look forward to seeing the Kindergarten-6th grade parents on Tuesday, August 14th for Back to School Night. There will be a short presentation in the Church, and then everyone will move to the classrooms. This event is for parents only. The Junior High Back to School Night is scheduled for Wednesday, August 22nd.

Finally, Saturday, August 18th is the Dad’s Club Back to School BBQ. The BBQ will begin at 5:30pm. This is always such a fun night of food, friends and fellowship! This year there will be BINGO, too! Looking forward to seeing you there!!
